im trying to build a pc and so i can play VR pc games. lets say the Video card or the mother board dose not have a USB C port for the link.  Do they have an adapter or something that i can use like USB C female to usb male? or would i have to just buy a new motherboard or video card with a USB C port.

You just need USB 3.1 ports. USB C is a form. USB C can be USB 2.0 or UBS 3.1. You can buy USB 3.1 cables that have USB A on one end and USB C on the other, or you could buy a USB 3.1 cable with USB A on both ends and use a USB 3.1 adapter. The later is what I use. One weird thing is even though USB C is supposed to be plug any direction, some adapters I have used only work one direction. But they work.

I recently bought the Oculus Quest 2 thinking I would need the $75 cable to work with my Asus G11 Gaming Desktop, Intel Quad-Core i5 6400 and realized that I have the standard type usb. Is the type c adapter all I need or is there a cheaper work around that will work? Thanks

If you have a USB 3.1 Port and a USB 3 Cable (blue inside) then all you would need is a USB 3 Type A Female to USB Type C Male adapter.

that would work if it was the right gender... I need standard usb (type A male) to (female type C) but would rather just get a cheaper cable if it will work from PC to VR.

Yes, that cable would work just fine and has a good rating, assuming that your ports are good.
